Titleholder Sergey Lipinets and challenger Mikey Garcia are ready for tomorrow night’s Showtime main event from San Antonio, as the two fighters and four more made weight for the card.

Garcia (37-0, 30 KO) and Lipinets (13-0, 10 KO) will put their undefeated records on the line, along with Lipinets’ WBO 140-pound title. Garcia weighed in at 139½ pounds, with Lipinets at 139¾.

In the co-feature, Rances Barthelemy (26-0, 13 KO) and Kiryl Relikh (21-2, 19 KO) will meet in a rematch, with the vacant WBA “world” title at stake, also at junior welterweight. Barthelemy, who won the first fight by decision, weighed in at 139½, with Relikh at the limit of 140.

Richard Commey (25-2, 22 KO) and Alejandro Luna (22-0, 15 KO) also meet on the card, in an IBF lightweight eliminator, with the winner in line for a shot at Robert Easter Jr, which would be a rematch for Commey, should he win. Commey weighed in at 134¾, with Luna at 135 on the button.
